SUMMARY: Get behind the mouth of the sea's most dangerous predator. Hungry Shark for the iPhone tosses you into the ocean and asks you to do one thing: eat! This app has you devour everything that you can in your never-ending race to stay alive and well-fed. Munch on everything from crabs, swordfish, humans, and more.

Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

There are very few games created for older mobile phones that do well in the app store but Hungry Shark seems to be having no problems. The game feels like a port of an older game created for devices a couple generations past. You play as a shark who is ridiculously hungry.

Similar to every shark portrayed in movies, you are ready to eat everything that gets in your way and it is your job to navigate the huge sea to gobble all in sight. The game comes in two different parts each with it’s own unique area and creatures. The levels are actually really big and it can be easy to get lost in them. Gameplay-wise, there isn’t much more to the game than dodging bad things and eating good things. The game never really changes too much though as you progress lower into the sea, it gets much more dangerous.

The controls are decently customizable but the huge downfall of the app is the terrible graphics. Since this game isn’t truly set for the iPhone, everything will look a little muddy on the screen. The developers seem to be updating on a decent schedule so here’s to hoping we get a graphics boost. The first part is available for free so definitely check it out.
